July 4th

Since we were due July 3rd we left 4th of July plans up in the air... I had hoped people would congregate here so we could participate in the festivities, but also take it easy... Leaving it this way, we ended up with a very low key holiday... which was fine by me! 
 Grandma and Grandpa Houston came down for dinner- the girls and Grandma were a big help in grilling and making a yummy berry dessert.  Waiting for it to be dark enough for pyrotechnics was hard for those who normally go to bed early...
 Bill had bought a ton of fireworks; they are legal in Maine this year (not that that stopped him in the past!) and was a bit disappointed that we didn't have a crowd to watch them.  I thought they were great though, and the kids had a lot of fun helping to set them off!  Wes and I sat in the grass and were the "audience" while Wyatt slept thru the whole thing in the living room!

Happy 4th!

  1. So, he really is going to look a lot like Grandpa Houston. The photo of him on the flag will go in my fetal monitoring class!! I have Jay in the easter basket in there...
